    I purchased an Organic Coconut Flour Packet to make coconut bread.

    It says the serving size = 15g
    and Sugars/Serving = 1g.

    Isn’t that too much sugar? It tastes a lot sweet whin I eat it raw, Is it alright to eat it raw?

    Or, did I purchase the wrong product.

    Below is the Flour I Purchased:

    The 1g of sugar is very low. In comparison, an apple has 24g of sugar approximately, red onion 3g of sugar, head of lettuce 3g of sugar, broccoli has 4g of sugar per stalk, and the list goes on and on. There is no way to completely eliminate sugar because it exists in all vegetables.

    I came up with a general rule to have less than 25g of sugar per day. You are welcome to follow it or not, but I would limit what you eat as far as sugary foods. Kefir and greek yogurt are relatively high in sugar for the diet.

    Raster, Thanks for your response.

    I was worried that I bought the wrong product, because it says it has 1g for every 15g. So the whole packet should contain lot more.

    i.e. 500g pack = 33g of Sugar. Its a lot.

    So, I got confused.

    Just want to make sure if this brand is alright or will I need to change to a different brand. Others are over priced in the stores here.

    I believe all coconut flour contains the same amount of sugar content (I am unsure of course) so I wouldn’t worry. The main thing to worry about with foods includes sugar content, mold content, starch content, and dairy content. Coconut flour has very low sugar and no other bad aspects. Something like potatoes for instance would have sugar and starch. Cheese for instance would have sugar, dairy, molds, but no starches and thats why its not allowed.
